Mvelopes Updates, News, and Announcements – Mobile Bill Pay is Here for Android!

Hello Mvelopes Members,

It is here! Now Mvelopes Premier members with Android devices can use our Bill Pay feature while on the go. Following our recent release to add this to iOS devices, we’re excited to bring this to the rest of our members with Android devices.

As a reminder, our Bill Pay system lets you transfer money from one bank to another, quickly and easily.  With Mobile Bill Pay, you can immediately schedule a bill payment for as early as the next business day, right from your phone – from any of the financial institutions that are connected to your Mvelopes account.

This feature is one of many valuable features available with an Mvelopes Premier membership. Not yet a Premier member?  Log into Mvelopes and upgrade today, it’s only $9.95 per month.

We thank you again for your continued membership and are honored to be a part of your journey to financial success!

**We posted this before, but as a refresher, here it is again:**

If you’ve never used Bill Pay before, Mvelopes Premier members simply need to:

1.  Click on the “More” tab on the Home screen
2.  Select “Bill Pay” from the drop down menu

Have your statements ready, you’ll need to enter the contact information and specifics for your billers, and you’ll be ready to go!

Once you have Bill Pay setup from the online app, you’ll be ready to start using Mobile Bill Pay:

1.  Tap on the new Bill Pay icon which appears in the navigation bar within the Mvelopes App
2.  For security, a screen will appear, allowing you to request authorization for your device
3.  Once you have requested authorization, you will need to login to Mvelopes from your computer, click on My Account → Preferences → Device Authorization
4. You will see the authorization request from your device. Click the check box to approve the request and click Save
5. Re-launch the Mvelopes App from your iPhone and begin paying bills. You will be required to enter your Bill Pay PIN, just as you do when you access Mvelopes from your computer

Sometimes life gets hectic.  Keeping track of different bills, due dates, etc. on top of everything else life throws at you can be a challenge.  We hope you’ll find that this latest enhancement makes it even easier to make sure you never miss another payment due date.


Is Bill Pay/Mobile Bill Pay available on the free version of Mvelopes?

No, Bill Pay and Mobile Bill Pay are only available with Mvelopes Premier.  Mvelopes Premier members can make 15 payments each month.  Additional payments are only $0.50 each (about the cost of a stamp) but we find that most members are able to meet their needs with 15 payments per month.

It is Thursday and I have a bill due on Friday! Will it get there in time?

Yes! You may schedule a payment for as early as the next business day.  When you attempt to schedule your bill, the application will display a list of acceptable payment dates.  If you have a bill that is due the same day or before the next business day, we recommend you contact that biller directly to make a payment in order to avoid any fees they may charge for late payment.

What’s new this month?

We are excited to add the the ability to log in to existing accounts and to enroll in a new Mvelopes account by leveraging Facebook credentials.  Check it out, it will be ready by mid-November, so stay tuned!

Coming soon

In response to member feedback, and as part of our on-going effort to improve your envelope budgeting experience, we are making some enhancements and re-designs to and to our member forums.  Be on the lookout for more information on this as we work toward a late November/early December launch!
